2 COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENT-ATHLETE
Dear College-Bound Student-Athlete,

We designed this guide to help you and your family understand the National
Collegiate Athletic Association rules for progressing from being a high school
athlete to a student-athlete in college.

As you engage in college sports, you’ll be inspired to develop an attitude of
determination, teamwork, persistence and self-discipline. You will increase your
appreciation of life-long education. Work closely with your high school counselors,
recruiters and college admissions officers to prepare for your next important step
as a collegiate student-athlete.

It’s never too early to begin evaluating your wide range of college choices. Get all the
information you need on how to choose a college wisely. NCAA institutions range
from small schools to large universities, with varying commitments to financial aid
and to athletics. The Association’s members total more than 1,000 schools, and
they are divided into three divisions.

You may qualify – by both your interest and your athletics performance – to
become one of more than 400,000 students, out of 15 million enrolled nationally
in America’s colleges and universities, who combine education and athletics. Your
likelihood of ultimate recruitment into professional leagues is small so, for almost
all of you, your years as a student-athlete in college will be preparation for life. As
our public service announcements say, “Almost all student-athletes are going pro
in something other than sports.”

Remember, good athletics is about winning at competition in games. Good
academics combined with athletics is about winning in life. So, keep education as
your top priority. This new phase of your life can be a wonderful experience that
will result in a lifetime of friendships, memories and happiness. Without question,
obtaining your college degree is absolutely crucial – to you especially, but also to
your family and to us.

We wish you every success, on the field of play and in the classroom. Student-
athletes are at the center of our Association.

ACT and SAT Tests
Test-Score Requirements
You must achieve the required score on the SAT or ACT before your
full-time collegiate enrollment. You must do this whether you are
a citizen of the United States or of a foreign country. Also, state-
administered ACT exams will be accepted by the Eligibility Center.
You may take the national test given on one or more of the dates
shown below.
IMPORTANT CHANGE:
All SAT and ACT scores must be reported to the Eligibility Center
directly from the testing agency. Test scores will not be accepted
if reported on a high school transcript.

When registering for the SAT or ACT, input the Eligibility Center
code of 9999 to make sure the score is reported directly to the
Eligibility Center.

Taking Tests More than Once
You may take the SAT or the ACT more than one time. If you take
either test more than once, you may use your best subscore from
different tests to meet the minimum test-score requirements.
Here is an example:
                 Math      Verbal/Critical Reading      Total Score
 SAT (10/09)     350                470                    820

 Scores used     420                470                    890
Your test score will continue to be calculated using the math
and verbal/critical reading subsections of the SAT and the math,
science, English and reading subsections of the ACT. The writing
component of the ACT or SAT will not be used to determine

 Your Amateurism
 and You
If you want to participate in NCAA Division I or II athletics, you
must also be certified as an amateur student-athlete. The Eligibility
Center will determine the amateurism eligibility of all freshman
and transfer college-bound student-athletes for initial participation
at an NCAA Division I or II member institution. In Division III,
certification of an individual’s amateurism status is completed by
each institution, not the Eligibility Center.
When you register with the Eligibility Center, you will be asked
questions about your athletics participation. The information you
will provide will be reviewed and a determination will be made
as to whether your amateurism status should be certified or if
a penalty should be assessed before certification. If a penalty is
assessed, you will have an opportunity to appeal the decision.
The following precollegiate enrollment activities will be reviewed:
  1. Contracts with a professional team.
  2. Salary for participating in athletics.
  3. Prize money.
  4. Play with professionals.
  5. Tryouts, practice or competition with a professional team.
  6. Benefits from an agent or prospective agent.
  7. Agreement to be represented by an agent.
  8. Delayed initial full-time collegiate enrollment to participate in
     organized sports competition.
Additional information regarding NCAA amateurism rules is
available on the Eligibility Center’s Web site by logging on to
www.eligibilitycenter.org, then clicking on the “Resources” link at

    Steps to Achieving
    Your Eligibility
Freshmen and Sophomores
• Start planning now!
• Work hard to get the best grades possible.
• Take classes that match your school’s list of approved core
  courses.
• You can receive your school’s list of approved core courses at
    www.eligibilitycenter.org.

Juniors
• At the beginning of your junior year, register at
  www.eligibilitycenter.org.
• Register to take the ACT, SAT or both and use the Eligibility
  Center code (9999) as a score recipient.
• Double check to make sure the courses you have taken match
  your school’s list of approved core courses.
• Ask your guidance counselor to send an official transcript to the
    Eligibility Center after completing your junior year. If you have
    attended more than one high school, the Eligibility Center will
    need official transcripts from all high schools attended. (The
    Eligibility Center does NOT accept faxed transcripts or test
    scores.)
•   Before registration for classes for your senior year, check with
    your guidance counselor to determine the amount of core
    courses that you need to complete your senior year.

Seniors
• Take the SAT and/or ACT again, if necessary. The Eligibility
    Center will use the best scores from each section of the ACT or
    SAT to determine your best cumulative score.
•   Continue to take college-prep courses.
•   Check the courses you have taken to match your school’s list of
    approved core courses.
•   Review your amateurism responses and request final
    amateurism certification on or after April 1 (for fall enrollees) or
    October 1 (for spring enrollees).
•   Continue to work hard to get the best grades possible.
•   Graduate on time (in eight academic semesters). If you fall
    behind, use summer school sessions before graduation to catch
    up.
•   After graduation, ask your guidance counselor to send your final
    transcript to the Eligibility Center with proof of graduation.

 Eligibility Center
 Registration
Online Registration: The Eligibility Center has designed a new
Web site with you, the student-athlete, in mind. This is where you
will find the tools and information you need to begin your college
experience as a student-athlete.
To register with the Eligibility Center, go online to
www.eligibilitycenter.org. To create an account, either click on
the “New Account” button at the top right of the screen or the cell
phone on the left side of the screen.
Account Creation
You will need to provide a valid e-mail address to create an account
and begin the registration process. Be sure you provide an e-mail
address that will be active even after you complete high school.
About Me
In this section, you just need to pass along some quick facts about
you—information such as your name, date of birth, gender and
where you live.
My Coursework
You will need to enter the name and location of the high school
you currently attend in this section. If you have attended more
than one school (including summer school) during grades nine, 10,
11 or 12, you will need to have that information ready as well. List all
schools you previously attended. Make sure to include all schools,
whether you received grades or credits. If you attended ninth
grade in a junior high school located in the same school system in
which you later attended high school, do not list the ninth-grade
school.
My Sport
In this section, you will select the sport(s) you plan to participate
in at an NCAA Division I or II school. The Eligibility Center will also
ask about the high school and/or club teams you have been a part
of and events you have participated in during your high school
career.
Payment
Your account will be eligible for processing only with payment of
an application fee of $60 for U.S. students or $85 for international
students (or submission of a fee waiver if you have been granted a
waiver). You must pay by debit, credit card or e-check.
You are eligible for a waiver of the registration fee only if you have
already received a waiver of the ACT or SAT fee. (This is not the
same as a U.S. state voucher.) You must have an authorized high
school official submit your fee waiver documentation online. If
you have not yet been granted a fee waiver by ACT or SAT, you are
not yet eligible for a waiver of the registration fee.

 Financial Aid
Athletics scholarships are awarded by NCAA Divisions I and II
institutions. Division III institutions do not award financial aid
based on athletics ability, but you may be eligible to receive
academic scholarships or need-based financial aid. It is important
to understand several points about athletics scholarships. (Note:
The information below is a summary and does not include all
Divisions I and II financial aid rules. Contact your college or
university to get more detailed information about NCAA financial
aid rules.):
• Athletics scholarships in Divisions I and II are given initially for
  up to one year. They may be renewed annually for a maximum
  of five years within a six-year period of continuous college
  attendance if you fulfill NCAA requirements. But please keep in
  mind that your athletics aid can be cancelled or reduced at the
  end of one year.
• Athletics scholarships can be renewed, reduced, increased
  or canceled from year to year for almost any reason. If your
  scholarship is going to be reduced or cancelled at any time, your
  college or university must first provide you with an opportunity
  to appeal that decision.
• Athletics scholarships are awarded in a variety of amounts,
  ranging from full scholarships (including tuition, fees, room,
  board and books) to very small scholarships that, for example,
  provide only required course-related books.
• You must report all scholarships you receive to your college
  financial aid office. The total amount of financial aid a student-
  athlete can receive and the total amount of athletics aid a team
  can award may be limited. These limits can affect whether a
  student-athlete may accept additional financial aid from other
  sources. Ask financial aid officials at the college or university
  about other financial aid you may be eligible to receive and
  about the impact of that aid on athletics aid limits.
An athletics scholarship is a tremendous benefit to most families,
but you should have a plan to pay for those college costs not
covered by a scholarship (e.g., travel between home and school).
You should also consider how you will finance your education if
your athletics scholarship is reduced or canceled.
